Hi guys,

I wanted to know what you think is the business capital of the US.

Please take into account a holistic approach. For example, access to labour, capital, tax-friendly environment, industry access, etc.

Cheers

Miller

They don't have to be because businesses setting up shop there have access to a workforce and infrastructure that's simply unparalleled anywhere else in the country.

Seattle belongs nowhere near the rest of that list haha. DC, LA, Boston and Philly would all also come before Seattle when it comes to business centers.

Wall Street alone makes NYC the financial (and business) capital of America, and arguably the world.
